What is it like to grow up in a family with different norms?  'Lode's Code' is an auto- visual ethnographic portrait that shows the relationship with the filmmaker oldest brother Lode and her search into her own position within the family nest. Her leaving is the common thread. Using family footage collected over four years; Marieke (the filmmaker) has made a hybrid animation-documentary. She does not offer explanations, but brings subjective experiences to the fore.
